As a result of their outstanding auditions, three Kings High School students earned the honor of participating in the 2017 All Northwest Choirs, which performed last weekend at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and the Westin Hotel in Bellevue.
Diego Lomba, a sophomore at King’s High School, grew up in a family of musicians in Nashville, TN, “Music City, USA,” so it’s little wonder that the talented tenor earned a place in the All-Northwest Mixed Choir with his first audition for the group. In Tennessee at Mount Juliet Middle School, Diego played the role of Schlomo Metzenbaum in Fame Jr., another first-audition success. He has participated in Concert Choir at King’s as both a freshman and a sophomore, and is currently a member of Living Faith under director Michael Hendrix. Diego also plays guitar and serves as a worship leader for Overflow, the youth group at Lake Sammamish Foursquare church in Bellevue, WA.
Hannah Limb, a junior at King’s, was invited to participate in the 2017 All Northwest Jazz choir. Hannah has had a love of music for years. She loves to sing, and has developed a desire to expand her experience with different types of music. Hannah has participated in various music programs at King’s and also studies music and trains outside of King’s. When asked about her experience practicing and singing with the All-Northwest Jazz Choir, Hannah said it has been “absolutely amazing.”
Alex Garrett comes from a Seattle-based family with a rich musical heritage. He has participated in All State and All Northwest Choirs three times during his high school career. At Kings, he has been a part of Celebration, Abundant Life, and Living Faith. This year he is also participating in the high school’s musical theater production of Cinderella. He plans to attend Skagit Valley College after he graduates from King’s High School.
Reflecting on their All Northwest Choir experience, Diego said, “The highlight for me would probably be having Dr. Armstrong as our director. He is the Director of the St. Olaf Choir, which is one of the best choirs in the world, and he is arguably the best director in the world.”
Congratulations to these outstanding performers!
